Reach of Hinduism knows no boundaries. Teachings, preachings and worship of Hindu gods and goddesses are scattered over India's magnificent collection of temples and religious towns. As their popularity has reached international quarters, devotees and leisure tourist from different parts of the world have started travelling to India. One such temple nestled in the culturally rich land of Gujarat is Dwarkadeesh Temple at Dwarka. As its glorious structure seems to rise from blue waters of Arabian Sea, the aura of devotion, spirituality, belief and architectural brilliance spread wings in the surrounding areas.

Dwarkadeesh Temple is believed to be built around 2500 years ago by Vajranabh, the great grandson of Lord Krishna. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and therefore the complex remains pre- occupied by his devotees all year round. A flight of nearly 56 steps takes one to this 100 feet high structure and offer the most captivating views of Gomti River. While immaculate artwork and extraordinary design adorns the exterior of the temple, its interior promotes architectural simplicity. Detailed ornamentation around the main shrine of the idol Dwarkadhish is truly surreal and beautiful.

A trip of Dwarkadhish Temple not only enhances ones religious instinct, but also enriches him with the glory of temple art and architecture because:

  • Dwarkadhish Temple portrays the best and artistic use of soft limestone,
  • display of artwork on the outside walls explains different facets like eroticism and mythic intensity and
  • there are two gigantic gate ways, swarga dwar (gate to heaven), where pilgrims enter, and moksha dwar (gate to liberation), for pilgrims to exit.
